Negative factors

  • For an investor in the highest tax bracket, it doesn’t make sense to invest in these as the net returns are comparable with that of the tax-free bonds.
  • NCDs are illiquid. If the interest rates fall, it may be difficult for investors to capitalise on falling interest rates.
